The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are the clear better team and probably should be the pick with the reasonable chalk. However, the Toronto Argonauts have had extra time to prepare for this game, and they’re usually good at home. In fact, the home team has won 5 straight and 8 of the last 9 meetings between the Blue Bombers and Argos. The Toronto Argonauts are capable of making a run at the East and these sorts of games, especially at home, are ones they need to win. I’ll take a shot with the home dog.
